When you stop to think about how much time we spend sitting each day, it is pretty mind-boggling. If you work in an office, even deducting two hours for lunch, breaks and going to deliver something, we sit at our desks about six hours per day, thirty hours per week or one thousand, five hundred hours per year. Add to that about another hour per day we sit while driving to work, which comes to another two hundred and forty hours and the grand total is now one thousand, seven hundred and forty hours we sit..and that is just the time we sit while working. If you want to include the time at home, you can add another twenty to thirty hours per week. Here, we will focus on the time usually spent sitting at work. We really need to take better care of ourselves because all of that time spent sitting does have a tremendous and detrimental effect on our health, especially our spine. It sometimes happens immediately, but will always eventually wind up hurting us. So it should make sense that you find a way to lessen that stress on your back. Here are a few options for the best back support for office chair that you can use at work, home and even use them in your car.
